Founders' Day

42 Years of GSD&M

Celebrating Founders’ Day

In celebration of Founders’ Day, we’ve put together a six-second history of the agency. Because a lot has happened in 42 years at GSD&M. From growing out of our 50-square-foot office to building a brand-new building. From winning our first client to winning 37 more. From buying our first printer to becoming a leader at SXSW. It’s been an adventure around every turn. So today, we take six seconds to reflect on the road that led us to where we are today. Get ready for a time warp. GSD&M: 42 years in six seconds.

Day of the Dead

A stop-motion brand campaign

Jarritos is a delicious Mexican soda cherished by people young and old—and occasionally dead. In this campaign, we married a traditional Día de los Muertos style with contemporary characters to show how Jarritos is made with real fruit flavors and comes in real glass bottles. What’s not to love about that? Jarritos may not be from here, but they sure know what people from here like to drink.

Summer Fridays

Summer Fridays

Summertime in Austin, and the living is easy. Easy if you know how to balance, that is. Triple-degree heat? Have a sno-cone. Bug trouble? Release the bats.

Here’s a snapshot of how we’ve been spending our time with these most glorious of diversions.

How much do you know about GSD&M’s
best-dressed president?

The latest segment from the agency series “Getting to Know Ya”

Sure, she’s making important decisions all day long, building on an already established core philosophy, running Austin’s largest ad agency…but what is it that’s kept her coming back every day for the last 14 years (besides camera shy account guys)?

Made in America

Poster printing by hand

The brand Barbasol is an indisputable piece of Americana. The shaving cream has been everywhere from medicine cabinets across the country to the front lines of WWII. Still proudly American owned and manufactured near Columbus, Ohio, Barbasol fits the very definition of “Made in the U.S.A.” Created in collaboration with Brooklyn screen printer Two Arms Inc., this poster celebrates Barbasol’s American heritage and features elements of Two Arms’ signature textured style.

Acoustic showcase from the lead singer of the Goo Goo Dolls

It’s hard to believe the Goo Goo Dolls just came out with their tenth album. Seems like just yesterday we were singing along to “Name” in our finest flannel while driving around a station wagon. Lead singer Johnny Rzeznik stopped by for an intimate showcase, where he played past favorites and new songs from Magnetic. The room was captivated by his raw vocals and big sound. And he stuck around to pose for pictures and sign autographs, appeasing the inner groupie in all of us. It got us excited about the new album and yet still brought us all back to the good ol’ days, flannel and all.
